Here are 7 warning signs of clogged arteries
Poor circulation by itself is never good, however, it could mean you have clogged arteries. Having a blockage in your arteries can kill you. That is why it is important to know the signs in order to be able to recognize them in time.
In almost all cases, poor circulation means you are unhealthy and need to see your doctor. It can mean anything from low blood pressure to heart problems to diabetes.
What other things can cause poor circulation?
Lots of sitting (see video below for circulation exercises)
Eat a lot of fast food
Obesity (imagine it)
Why is good trading important?
Every organ in your body depends on blood flowing freely to receive the vital nutrients it needs to function. Even if we slow down this process, it can damage important organs like the brain and heart.
Think of traffic jams on the 405 in Los Angeles for example.
When this happens, productivity doesn’t happen; Nobody does anything (let’s imagine there’s no iPhone for a minute) or delivers goods to areas where you need them. To “survive” the city and its surroundings, we need smooth traffic.
Are you chronically tired? Overcrowding? Pain in the legs?
These could be signs that you have peripheral arterial disease.
Here’s the scary part, doctors often fail to detect peripheral arterial disease (PAD) because the symptoms resemble many other health conditions, according to the American Heart Association. And don’t get me wrong, peripheral arterial disease can be very serious, so it’s important to take matters into your own hands to help your doctor see the exact problem.

So what exactly is peripheral arterial disease?
It happens when plaques build up in the arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis. Over the years, this plaque can harden and narrow your arteries, slowly suffocating your body. Peripheral arterial disease normally affects the arteries in the legs.
Leg pain and cramps
numbness in the legs
Healing is slower than normal
Leg hair loss
Keep in mind that none of the above symptoms may appear or be noticeable, so it’s best to direct your attention to preventative care measures.
Prevention and treatment
Here are the top 3 suggestions:
Increase physical activity
Adopt a vegetarian diet
Quit smoking and drinking alcohol
On a diet, consider eating more ginger (put it in your juices) and garlic. Vitamin E is particularly beneficial for blood circulation, as are nuts such as almonds, Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds.
Plus, you can’t go wrong getting more antioxidants like vitamins C, D, E, beta-carotene, and selenium. That means heading to a local farmers market and stocking up on organic fruits and vegetables.
